Over recent years, with the support of our expert advisory group, Architects for Change, the RIBA has made some progress to more deeply understand the key challenges that the architecture profession faces regarding equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).
As outlined in our inclusion transparency report, published in September 2020, we know that there is much work we must all do over the next few years to make architecture more inclusive, and the RIBA has a key leadership role to play.
Our EDI strategy — Creating Opportunity and Enabling Success, published in 2019 — has now been developed into the RIBA Inclusion Framework.

We encourage all signatories to our Inclusion Charter, individuals and practices who have committed to breaking down barriers to make architecture more inclusive, to use this as a template for creating your own inclusion action plan: embedding these vital changes into your business planning.
